TOPIC: PIP

PIP 1 year 6 days ago #156612

Just received decision for PIP after six months. I was awarded enhanced rate for both parts. I asked for a copy of the assessment report which gave standard award for both. I was ready to appeal because the so called consultation was so poorly conducted.

The decision maker must have had the same opinion of the consultation.

This website proved invaluable when writing a full account of my medical history and disability.
I say to readers spend a lot of time reading on this website and be sure to send every piece of relevant written evidence.

As soon as you have had a consultation ask DWP for a copy and look at the inconsistences. Be warned this is not the same as DLA.

Thanks to everyone at Benefits and Work website.
